Bilibili, the Chinese video sharing and ACG (animation, comic and game) community, has made its debut on the world’s top video game distribution platform, Steam, as the publisher for two new titles of The Con Simulator and Invaxion, expanding to the PC gaming sector. Neither are available for purchase, but are listed on the Steam platform.

Developed by DGSpitzer, The Con Simulator is a simulation game for players who are dreaming about organizing their own comic con. Invaxion is a music-themed casual game developed by Nanjing based-developer Aquatrax. The two games will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year.

Started as a video streaming site, Blibili quickly grows to be the hub for China’s 2D culture, which is characterized by fans that develop a strong attachment to 2D characters in cartoons, table cards, comics, games, and novels. As an important part of the sub-culture as well as a highly lucrative business, gaming has become a core business and major revenue source for the company.
